Is an alkalizing vegetable drink, a great addition to a diet to assist with healthy bone formation and maintenance. I include this broth into my own healthy eating plan anytime I am troubled by arthritis pain for any length of time, I have always gained relief, just by returning to a more alkalizing type of diet. This in turn is very beneficial as part of my bone health action plan
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme are all antibacterial and antiviral! ...But you still need to alkalize for bone health.
To 1 1/2 quarts of water add:
2 large potatoes, chopped or sliced to approx. 1/2 inch slices
1 cup carrots, shredded or sliced
1 cup celery, chopped or shredded, leaves and all
Some Beet tops, turnip tops, parsley, onion or whatever you have from the garden (or whatever is in season at the store)
Add some fresh herbs like sage, rosemary, thyme & garlic
I also add a few red pepper seeds
You could add gravy beef if you want the flavour of beef tea or some Vegemite if you crave the salty flavour.
Cover and cook slowly for about 1/2 hour using only stainless steel, glass or earthenware utensils. Strain the broth off and cool. Serve warm or cold. If not used immediately, keep in refrigerator and warm up before serving. Give the cooked vegetables to your chickens or put them on your compost pile.
Makes about 3 servings.
This is a standard beverage for all the health spas and healing clinics in Sweden a big mug of potassium broth--a cleansing, alkalizing and mineral-rich drink.
